Ryan Reynolds' passion project is a faithful adaption.

Foul-mouthed mercenary Deadpool takes aim at superhero movies

February 10th, 2016

Ryan Reynolds' passion project is a faithful adaption.

  • The result still feels like something ABC might have aired in 1997.

  • It’s possible to find a healthier balance between corporate profit and overall human happiness than the U.S. generally favors.

  • There are so many famous people who pop up for a few seconds, it could have been Celebrity Cameo: The Movie.

  • Everything in theaters this week, plus special screenings and movie reviews.

  • Head out to Boulder Theatre and take in some sweet shorts.

  • The creative duo's latest doesn't live up to their other masterpieces.

  • In attempting to please both sides, it dissatisfies all.

  • Writer-director Andrew Haigh examines love and relationships with intense subtlety.

  • The local motion-picture development and production company made a $2 million deal with Universal Pictures.

  • Reminding us that our best filmmakers are still at the top of their game isn't generally Sundance's brand, but who could possibly complain?

  • Everything playing in theaters this week, plus special screenings and movie reviews.

  • A story that was exhaustively scrutinized at the time it occurred proves just as exhausting two decades later.

  • There’s really nothing new to discover, but it’s still nice to see old friends every so often.

  • The rescue-at-sea drama takes place in 1952, and much of the movie feels like it could have been produced in the same era.
